Bold Concept to represent Grand Gesture Stable in 2018
Bold Concept, a three-year-old Indiana sired filly, has been purchased for Indiana Grand’s Racing Club, Grand Gesture Stable. The maiden filly had one start in 2018 prior to being purchased for the fractional ownership program. She finished a hard charging second in a maiden special weight Wednesday, April 18.
A daughter of Deputy Storm, Bold Concept was bred by R Star Stallions, Kerry Hopper and Jesse Hopper of Anderson, Ind. The filly sold at ITOBA’s Spring Two-Year-Old Sale held at Indiana Grand last June for a price of $7,500 to Cipriano Contreras’ Contreras Stables, Inc. She made her first start in early August. Her form began to turn around in her third start where she finished strong for fourth followed by a second and third place finish to complete her two-year-old season at Indiana Grand.
To date, Bold Concept has $16,710 in earnings in six career starts. Looking back five generations, many great racehorses appear in her lineage, including Northern Dancer, Bold Ruler and the great Secretariat, making her an interesting prospect for Grand Gesture Stable.
Bold Concept joins the barn of Anthony Granitz for Grand Gesture Stable. She is positioned right beside last year’s stable horse, AJ Pacer, who was purchased privately by three members of last year’s fractional ownership partnership of Grand Gesture Stable at the conclusion of the 2017 racing season. Just like AJ Pacer, Bold Concept has a perfect personality for Indiana Grand’s Racing Club, with a gentle, calm personality and a love of peppermints.
Grand Gesture Stable is now in its second season at Indiana Grand. The program began last year with 50 members owning a share of AJ Pacer. This season, the program has been opened up to 60 shares with the same one-time fee of $300 required upon registration. All members of the Stable must be a resident of Indiana and must be 21 years of age or older to participate.
Registration for Grand Gesture Stable opened Monday, April 2. Limited shares are available on a first come first serve basis and will be accepted until the Stable is full. For more information or to register, contact Anthony Iannello at (765) 491-2101 or by email at email@example.com.
